|Abstract:||Uterine sarcoma is a rare gynecological malignancy. This retrospective study covered a period of 18 years and during that time 15 cases of uterine sarcoma were treated in Ramathibodi Hospital. It represented an incidence of 6 per 10,000 gynecological admissions. There were 9 leiomyosarcomas, 3 endometrial stromal sarcomas, 2 mixed mullerian sarcomas, and one rhabdomyosarcoma. The average age of the patients was 45.67 years, 3 under 40 and five after menopause. The mean parity was 4. The most common presenting symptoms were vaginal bleeding and abdominal mass. The diagnostic curettage was positive in only 2 out of 7 cases. All were treated by hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Two out of 4 cases who received adjuvant radiotherapy or chemotherapy were still-alive at 1 and 3 year follow-up. The crude survival rate was 40 per cent.|
